14th May – 27th June 1993
The first solo exhibition of the New York artist Aura Rosenberg in Europe attracts great attention. She fills the Kunsthalle with overpainted excerpts from porn magazines. Through the miniature, gold-framed pictures, the artist forces the exhibition visitors* into voyeuristic, sometimes unpleasant proximity. The large stone installations with body fragments are then taken over by the Salzburger Kunstverein for the exhibition «RealSex».
Aura Rosenberg (*1949, New York/US) lives and works in New York and Berlin. As a painter, photographer, sculptor and video artist, her diverse artistic practice focuses on sexuality, gender roles, childhood and history, with the question of authenticity playing a central role.
